Great pics. Snow riding can be fun. I was at the Airline in West Thompson at 7 am, I got 15 mi in before the snow set in. I used my 29er, there was about an inch of snow from the previous day.


More great pics/info from the Airline here.

wonder what the trail looks like this week. thinking about going back Saturday. bare dirt/gravel, etc? still covered in ice or snow? muddy? warm temps during the day + rain but sub freezing at night makes me wonder. the grassy areas up here are bare now

I rode from Pomfret Center to Willimantic and back early Monday morning. Hard surface, no snow at all, a couple of icy spots but no problem, really good conditions, used the Vaya, 42 mm tires w/fenders. It was getting soft as the sun hit the surface, it is supposed to be a bit warmer till Sunday at least. I would recommend big soft tires as it might be soft and muddy in spots, no studs, fenders are good also.
